Event Description

Understand, Minimize and Resolve Construction Claims!

Construction Claims are the two strong words that strike fear and loathing in the hearts of not just employers, but also construction managers.  Construction Claims is an entire industry dedicated to preventing, asserting and resolving difficulties that occur on a construction project.  The last half century has seen a growth in claims around the world. Claims are now a major construction management issue—they even overshadow performance which is on-time or on-budget.

Not surprisingly, as a result of the rise of construction claims throughout the world, there has been an advent of stricter contracts, an increase in dispute resolution alternatives, and in many locations, a hardening of employer attitudes towards contractors’ pleas for relief from perceived changes in the work.  Every member of the project team, from designers to managers to contractors to employers, are affected by the rise of these claims.

This session with expert speaker John Livengood will outline the basics of why and how claims develop, what it takes to make a claim, what it takes to defend against a claim, and some rules to help avoid, minimize and resolve claims.
